We’ve been delighted at the response to the news that we are bringing back breakfast from 8am -11am every day. We’ve got the usual favourites of full English or pancakes and blueberries – and we’ve added some new specials such as avocado and poached egg or chorizo and black pudding hash (checkout our full menu here ). Glad we gave in to the begging, we’re excited to have breakfast back too.


It’s no secret how much we love the team at Ridgeview and we have been lucky enough to have spent the last 15 years in the company of these great people. Based just up the road from us in Ditchling, our customers cannot get enough of their award winning English sparkling wine. In celebration of ‘English wine week’ we are hosting a four course Ridgeview wine supper in our dining room. Together we have developed an exciting menu, selected to pair perfectly with their excellent sparkling wines. This is an evening not to be missed, join us on Thursday 31st May from 7pm. To view our menu please click here and to book your table online or seat call 01273 843147.


OK, so we are definitely biased here. But when we saw the creation that our pastry chef Jess made for a recent customer it made us think that there wasn’t a cake we would want more for our birthdays! So if you are coming to us and celebrating a special occasion let us know if you’d like a cake when you book your table and Jess will do the rest, about 5 days notice would be great. Tell her what you like and you’ll be amazed at what she can do (and we’ll all get a bit jealous again…)


This year we’re supporting our friends at the Brighton Food and Drink Festival – a celebration of food and drink in Sussex – by creating a special wine list for Brighton Wine Week. Our brilliant suppliers, Hennings Wine have put together a list of interesting wines for customers to try including a white wine from Ditchling based wine growers, Court Garden Farm.


It seems to have come round quickly but just to remind you that the Easter Weekend is Friday 30 March – 2 April. We’ll be serving food from 12-9.30pm Friday and Saturday and 12-9pm on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, our menu will be changing to include some seasonal Spring Lamb and fresh asparagus. We’ll also be serving breakfast every day 8-11am so take some time out for some good food and relaxation on the Bank Holiday – it’s been a long winter!

Easter Kids Quiz – We had such fun with our Easter word treasure hunt last year, we’ll be doing the same again in the garden this year. To help keep the children amused we’ll be hiding some letters that make an Easter word, pick up a clue sheet from behind the bar and for each one filled in correctly we’ll give a chocolate reward to the kids and a donation to Ditchling St Margaret’s Primary School. Have fun!


We hope you all survived the snow, it looked very beautiful in the village and it was great to see so many of you coming in to enjoy hot chocolates, mulled cider and lunch having enjoyed views, walks and some sledging from the Beacon or Lodge Hill. We’re in such a great location in the middle of the village and will always do our best to stay open snow or shine.


It’s not only the downstairs at The Bull which has been extended and refurbished – we are just finishing the renovation of two new bedrooms upstairs which means we will have six beautiful individually designed rooms available to stay in from Easter weekend. The two new rooms can be booked together as they are interconnected and can form a family suite. Perfect for a Sussex minibreak with the kids – enjoy the country air in the South Downs or take a trip to Brighton seafront – or both. Our whole pub is child friendly and we have a separate menu for ‘Little People’ including roasts on Sundays.
